Handy and adorable bonnets for nursing babies

I just saw the cutest - and coolest - things for nursing moms and their babies and I just have to share it with you. Someone on one of my yahoo groups was talking about it.

They are nursing bonnets and they are called MoBoleez. They are cute, soft little hats with great big rims for the nursing babies to wear. They give mom a little bit of discretion and they shield the light from the baby's face.

I would have loved one of these back in the day! I had so much trouble keeping the blanket up over my shoulder! If I moved too much, I made the blanket fall flat against my baby's face. Or if I wanted to check on my baby, or coo at my baby, it was difficult to pull the blanket back discreetly and then get it back in place comfortably for both me and baby.

I know that a lot of people are in an uproar about public nursing. And I am totally on the side of the fence of the nursers - let them nurse where they want! For me, though, I preferred to be covered up for my own sensitivity. I did not hesitate to nurse anywhere, though.

So for a mom like me, these bonnets would have been perfect! I think they are a great idea!

And just look at the pics on the site - the babies look so darn cute under those big things!! I am really baby crazy right now, you'll have to just excuse me. Must be something in the water!

I've got half a mind to hike up to our little hospital and beg them to let me rock some babes!!

Baby crazy is a nice feeling. Especially for me since I've got one on the way! I know what you mean about the nursing troubles. I had the same problem when I was trying to pump for the Toddler -since she couldn't latch and was in the NICU and all... I eventually gave up. Which was easier because of the mechanics involved in a hospital grade milking machine. But still.

Next time will go better around here. Just got to stay still and avoid another preemie. It's preemie awareness month, you know!
